Catching Up with Giving Thanks

Birthday Blessings
Centi Anni, Mickey & Mother!
The nearly finished first semester at school has been challenging. Flexible is our word for the year, and by the end of this last construction move, well, let's just say we tested our mettle. With budgets, mid-markings, 2 holidays, and a surprise move in the offering, it was so easy to get behind with the things that matter: staying connected with your life. We celebrated, to our credit, my mother's birthday early at her favorite place, Little Italy Italian Food Store and Restaurant in Phillipsburg, NJ. It's a one-of-a-kind-place, charming by any standard. Delicious aromas waft as you enter, and homespun hospitality and Southern Italy accented speech abounds.

Mother is 87 years young, and on these photos, I think she has never looked better. I think you will agree as you watch this slideshow celebrating her milestone birthday (after her bouts with surgery and conditions, every birthday is a milestone).
